Message from Mayor Kleem

The City of Berea and the Rotary Club of Berea are co-sponsoring a Shred Fest and Electronics Roundup on Saturday, July 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot of Berea-Midpark High School.  

If you have documents to shred or old computer equipment to get rid of, now would be a good opportunity to do that and prevent that material from ending in a landfill. Rotarians and BW student volunteers will be on hand to help you unload your vehicle. You can even watch your documents being shredded on site.

All the paper and electronic equipment will be recycled. The Shred Fest and Electronics Roundup is free.

The amount that Berea and its residents recycle has increased significantly since we began the automated curbside trash and recycling collection program three years ago.

The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District keeps track of statistics on recycling, and it recently released a comprehensive report for 2016. According to the Solid Waste District, Berea’s recycling rate was 45.44 percent. That means that more than 45 percent of household waste was diverted from landfills.  In 2015, our recycling rate was 45.18 percent, so we improved a little bit over the past year.

That 45.44 percent breaks down into two categories – recyclables and compost. Recycled items such as paper, cans, plastic, computers, household hazardous waste, amounted to 20 percent of the total. Another 25 percent included yard waste.

The Cuyahoga County average was 36.13 percent for 2016. Berea is above average countywide but our goal is to increase our recycling rate even higher. The results mean less trash polluting our land, water and air and lower tipping fees at the landfill.

In the Spotlight



Republic Services will pick up yard waste at curbside in Berea beginning on April 21 and continuing through Dec. 1.

Grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste should be placed in brown paper yard waste bags, which are available at discount, drug and hardware stores. Yard waste also can be placed in specially marked garbage cans. The bags and cans should not weigh more than 40 pounds when fully loaded. The yard waste will be recycled.

Yard waste in plastic bags should be placed in the blue trash container. Yard debris in plastic bags will not be recycled but will be placed in a landfill.


Leaves should not be raked to the curb.

Cut small branches to no more than 4 feet in length and bundle them with string. Place them at curbside alongside the yard waste bags and cans. Do not place yard waste in the green recycling containers.

Questions, call Republic Services at 800-433-1309.
